Infinite Possibilities

Posted by:

Professor Meir Pugatch spoke at the launch of the fourth edition of the U.S. Chamber’s International IP Index. Titled: Infinite Possibilities, this edition maps and benchmarks the intellectual property environment in 38 economies, which together account for nearly 85% of global gross domestic product (GDP). On the whole, while challenges and setbacks still exist across the board, many of the benchmarked countries have taken positive steps and improved their IP environments. The Index also includes a special annex which underscores the benefits experience by countries as they strengthen their IP environments by correlating the Index’s scores with 19 variables reflecting key economic activities. In fact, most of these correlations have strengthened with respect to the Index’s former edition, illustrating an even more compelling picture that IP rights support national efforts to build innovative and competitive economies.
